you and good afternoon to the members of the public here today. today i would like to nominate malia cohen for the position of the presidency of the board of supervisors. as many of you know, it's been 13 years since we have been able to nominate a woman. malia and i both came on this position at the same time if you years ago, and i know how hard malia work to get here and how hard she worked in the field. she has demonstrated a lot of leadership in the last two years. i want to say that this process has been very heartwarming for me to go through over the last three days. i've had a lot of great conversations with many of my colleagues and what i have learned in this time is that we have a lot of great leaders on this board and a lot of great individuals that could be president for this board and so this nomination is not set in the way that takes that away from anyone else. i think that given the historic nature of not having had a woman lead this board i want to put forth malia today. i want to say couple of things about malia. should represent a district that we talk

this at the board, supervisor malia cohen. >> thank you. thank you, mr. mayor, for your leadership. and chief, thank you for your continuing efforts to be a tremendous advocate and partner. and our collective effort to address gun violence in our city. as the mayor mentioned, the tragic event that occurred at sandy hook elementary school last week was truly horrifying. and painful for all of us to sit back and witness. but i'm here today not to speak of last week's events in connecticut, but i'm here today because of the phone calls that i regularly get from many of the police officers that are here in this room today in the middle of the night. department officers informing me and alerting me of the violent shootings that are happening right here in our own neighborhood. i'm here today because i have personally visited too many families as they grieve the loss of loved ones, largely due to gun violence. i'm here today because of the time that i've spent at general hospital consoling innocent victims of gun violence, some as young as five years old. i'm here because we have to do more and use every
